Goodwill’s Forklift/OSHA training program is a free five-day course that assists individuals with entry-level employment into the manufacturing, transportation and warehouse industries. The classes at Goodwill, taught by National Safety Council of North Carolina certified instructors, also include an OSHA-10 safety class.
Become Forklift Certified for the Manufacturing, Transportation and Warehouse Industry.
The program provides an overview of OSHA and NIOSH and hands-on instruction in lift truck design, vehicle safety inspection, moving with and without a load, and picking up and stacking a load. Special conditions involving trailers, ramps, elevators, and pedestrian safety are also addressed. All training is free of charge for Goodwill clients.
The course utilizes training videos, participant workbooks, and standardized testing for the classroom instruction and a final driving test. Successful class completion results in a three-year renewable NC General Industry Forklift certification and OSHA-10 safety card.
